    The Mughal Empire

    1526-1857


    Mughal is the Persian word for Mongol and was generally used to refer to the Central Asians who claimed descent from the Mongol warriors of Genghis Khan. The foundation for Mughal empire was established around 1504 by the Timurid prince Babur, a descendant of Genghis Khan and Timur, when he took control of Kabul and eastern regions of Khorasan controlling the fertile Sindh region and the lower valley of the Indus River

    Reading about The Mughal Empire....
    I was really impressed by The Mughal Emperor : Aurangazeb
    He was a staunch sunni muslim.

    Under Alamgir(Aurangazeb), Mughal court life changed dramatically. He (in consultation with clerics), allegedly did not allow music (though some scholars dispute this), and around 1668 commanded court musicians, dancers and singers to cease performing in his presence. Further, based on Muslim precepts forbidding images, he stopped the production of representational artwork, including the miniature painting that had reached its zenith before his rule. There is however a miniature portrait of the aged Aurangzeb with Qur'an in hand. Soldiers and citizens were also given free rein to deface architectural images such as faces — even on the walls of Mughal palaces. Untold thousands of representational images were destroyed in this way. Aurangzeb abandoned the Hindu-inspired practices of former Mughal emperors, especially the practice of 'darshan', or public appearances to bestow blessings, which had been commonplace since the time of Akbar, as well as lavish celebrations of the Emperor's birthday

    Re: The Mughal Empire

    I am very disapointed in Akbar - Jalaluddin Mohammed, he married a Hindu, allowed for a Hindu temple to be built inside of his mansion for her, and at the end of the day, he was pretty much a berwali in practise (going to Shrines and making dua' to the decessed!!, not Through the decessed,.. but TO them).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akbar

    I actually saw the bollywood movie 'Joodah Akbar' (based on the love story of Jalaluddin Mohammed Akbar and his hindu wife, Joodah the Rajput), it was an interesting movie..
